Happy Wednesday! First off, I wanted to thank everyone so much for your kind words about my daughter’s new quilt! Reading all your comments made my day, big time. :)

Today we lucky enough to have a giveaway from Christa Quilts. She is generously offering a $20 gift certificate to her shop so you can buy anything you want! Woot woot!

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment. Christa is trying to decide what new fabric to order – she’d love to know if you would rather see:

1. More Kona Cotton Solids – here’s what she currently carries.

2. The new Riley Blake Chevronshere’s her current Riley Blake offerings.

3. Something completely different – you suggest!

Good luck everyone! I’ll pick a winner Friday evening.

++ Closing Comments to Pick a Winner ++

The lucky winner is #96, Kate! Kate said “How about both? :) If I had to choose one, it’d be the chevrons.”

Congratulations Kate and thank you so much to everyone for commenting. I know Christa has some great ideas now of what to order next!

    Bronwyn says:

    I would love to see Art Gallery fabrics – they feeeel so gooood! Not a fan of Kona (though love your selection in the quilt) – it doesn’t feel good to me – there are better solids with a much gentler hand feel.

    Lazy Daisy says:

    Definitely more kona solids! I am so into solids lately. I can’t get enough! I’m in love with modern quilts that use solids. I think they’re timeless, and will never go out of style, like some fabric trends.

  41. 41
    Deb H. says:

    I’m not a huge fan of chevrons, even though they are all the rage…so, I guess i would go with the solids. A good selection of solids is a must to match all the different collections out there.

    Carla says:

    I love all the solids – thanks!

  69. 69

    The thing I’ve been looking for lately is bundles of coordinated FQs that are NOT necessarily from the same line. It’s tough to be confident that things are going to really match when you’re looking at different photos on a monitor where you aren’t 100% positive that things are their true colors!

    the solids are great! i’d suggest the Lizzy House pearl bracelets – i think they are being re-released as a rainbow collection.

    I’d love to see more text prints!

  88. 88

    More Kona solids please, and what I would really love is some kind of color chart to help me pick the right color when I’m ordering online — Maybe a swatch set or charm pack with one of each color, numbered so you know what to order more of?

  89. 89
    Katy D. says:

    I think the Riley Blake Ombre dots would be a great addition!

    I am looking for some text fabric, more dots, and I am looking at Organics (like Cloud9)

  103. 103
    Gill says:

    My vote is for more chevrons!!

  104. 104

    I’m in the solids camp — can’t seem to get on the chevron bandwagon for some reason…Good quality solid linen is always in demand too!

  105. 105
    F. Gloade says:

    I love them both, but if I have to make a choice I would pick the solids!

    Becky says:

    Chevrons, chevrons, chevrons. :)

  115. 115
    Sally says:

    I think that she would do well adding the chevrons and also possibly adding any solids to match the chevrons…if she doesn’t already carry those colors.

  116. 116
    Heather says:

    I love a grand selection of solids. Kona and others.

  168. 168
    SewLindaAnn says:

    I think a complete selection of solids would be perfect. That way she could have specials with fat qtr. or half yard bundles in color selections.

  169. 169
    Mhairi says:

    I think that a good collection of the Winterkist fabric range would be wonderful to add to the shop.

    I love the solids, but would love to add more “not quite solids” to my stash, like painter’s canvas, sketch, etc. Thanks for the chance to win.

  175. 175

    Erin says:

    While I always love more Kona options, I feel like they’re not that hard to find, so I say go chevrons (and echo those who ask for other not-solids).

    Jen B says:

    I love solids or near solids. Modern blenders are always welcome!
